Palmer’s saved my skin this past weekend!

It’s that time of year again! Camping season!! Erin and I packed up our families and headed to the lake this past weekend where we literally spent 3 days in this lake right here, on that “party raft” below.

The sun was hot and intense, and I religiously applied sunblock every 3-4 hours. Even with all the extra protection, I STILL got sunburned, and my skin was in dire need of some relief.

I whipped out Palmer’s Rapid Moisture Spray Lotion – and I’m not even kidding…. it was a LIFESAVER. The fast-absorbing, non-greasy and cocoa butter lotion was exactly what my skin needed! I/we used it so much, I have only a few applications left… which means now I MUST go buy more!

This lotion was shared with all the women/men in our campsite – and every single person said that they were going to have to go home and buy their own. Do yourself a favor…. GO GET THIS NOW.

I am also obsessed with their cocoa butter lip balm – it is heavenly. It helped heal my sunburned lips, and now I’m hooked!!

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula Deep Conditioning Protein Pack – When double dipping in the pool or ocean strips your hair of its natural moisture and leaves it dull and lifeless, this concentrated treatment repairs the follicle from the inside out, infusing it with strengthening protein and vitamins.

A 3-Step Shower Treatment for Better Underarms‏!

Liquid face and body wash-400ml HI RES

Warmer temps call for sleeveless shirts and swimsuits, exposing an area of the body that receives very little attention: Armpits! The mindless daily shave and quick roll of deodorant steal 50 percent of moisture from skin and wreak havoc on underarm’s delicate pH balance, causing problems like dryness, redness, bumps and itchiness. Constant irritation also exacerbates hyperpigmentation, which is one cause of darkened armpits.

Fortunately, pits aren’t picky. Spending just 60 seconds on this easy, three-step routine from Sebamed can keep underarm’s pH in check for a worry-free, comfortable day:

  •   Gently Cleanse with a Soap-Free Wash: Using your hands or a gentle microfiber cloth, cleanse the underarms with an ultra-mild wash like Sebamed Liquid Face & Body Wash. The soap-free formula deep cleanses while naturally conditioning and restoring skin to the ideal pH 5.5, and using your hands or a soft cloth instead of a loofah helps protect skin’s delicate barrier. ($19.95 for 400mL, SebamedUSA.com)
  •  Consciously Rinse and Pat Dry: Most of us forget to completely rinse and dry this area, causing water and cleansing residue to linger under the arms for unwanted itchiness. Instead of rubbing harshly with a towel, gently pat skin dry, which is much less abrasive.
  • Swipe on Sensitive Skin Deodorant: Many deodorants are based on harsh chemicals. Look for one made with balsam, a common hydrating oil that’s plant derived and soothing on sensitive skin. Apply one thin, even layer to the full area of the armpit (about a three-inch circle) using a gentle, single up-and-down swipe.

WARNING FOR PARENTS! Consumer Reports telling parents to NOT USE spray-on sunscreen!

0007965603058_500X500

An important alert this afternoon for parents!

According to a new report, spray-on sunscreens can put your child at risk for asthma or allergy attacks! Consumer Reports released the news after the Food and Drug Administration announced in 2011 that they are studying the product as to whether or not it can be harmful when inhaled by children. The FDA is still undecided.

“We now say that until the FDA completes its analysis, the products should generally not be used by or on children,” Consumer Reports says. “We have also removed one sunscreen spray — Ocean Potion Kids Instant Dry Mist SPF 50 — from the group of recommended sunscreens in our sunscreen ratings, because it is marketed especially for children.”

CR cautions only to use sprays on children if no other product is available at the time. If that is the case, CR recommends adults spray the sunscreen onto their hands and then rub it on their kids, avoiding the eyes and mouth.

However, some folks think the spray-on sunscreens have benefits. Spence Crimmins of Jacksonville Beach, Fla., protects his 8-year-old with spray-on sunscreen because it “goes on smooth and doesn’t leave a thick residue.” His son, Ryan Crimmins, likes the spray because it doesn’t take long to apply, leaving more time for water activities.

“It’s just quick and easy and it’s really smooth and it doesn’t hurt my skin,” Crimmins said.

Dr. Sunil Joshi, a family asthma and allergy specialist, says spray-on sunscreens and all aerosol products should never be used on kids with respiratory symptoms. Joshi says the sprays can trigger allergy or asthma attacks.

“If there is a child who tends to cough or wheeze or gets head colds and now you are spraying in their face, they are very likely to have those same symptoms and that can persist for hours at a time,” Joshi said. He recommends sunscreens without scents and hypo-allergenic lotions.

Crimmins says despite the warning from Consumer Reports, he will continue using sprays on his children.

“It doesn’t persuade me because this is my youngest and we’ve used it since he was little and we have a 21-year-old and they are both doing just fine,” Crimmins said. When WTLV-TV polled 10 families in Jacksonville Beach, the station found 7 out of 10 parents use spray-on sunscreens for their youngsters.

Good to know! I will use lotions from now on!
